I know I sound like I have completely gone off the deep end. I know is sounds weird and possibly even disgusting. My mother would agree with that assessment. Then again, she hates peanut butter to begin with.
Trust me, I am not insane, (OK, maybe a little, but that's beside the point) there is just something magical that happens to peanut butter when you add the sharpness of a Dill Pickle to it. It becomes sort of sweet. That combination of sharp vinegar laced with dill & salt works it's VooDoo on the lowly peanut, creating a whole new flavor that is sweet & creamy, yet salty and savory shot with the pungency of apple cider vinegar. It is a strange phenomenon that I cannot really explain, but it's delicious. (or at least I think so, but I like Balsamic Vinegar Ice Cream too)
Now mind you, I have only eat this sandwich when I'm fortunate enough to be in possession of a jar of my dad's homemade dill pickles. But even though I cannot personally vouch for store bought Dill Pickles in this application, I am fairly confident they will work just as well as my dad's do. The most important thing is the peanut butter. No JIF, Peter Pan or Skippy. Just good old peanuts, ground into "butter", with a little salt added. Me, I prefer the crunchy version, but creamy does work. It's just the Sugar & HFC laced stuff you need to avoid. As well as those that include non-peanut oils such as soy bean and palm.
I am also a big fan of seedy bread when doing this... Seriously seedy bread. Like the bread version of an everything bagel. It adds just a touch of heft to the sandwich.

First Toast the seedy bread and grab the peanut butter. (It doesn't need to be organic, just natural and untainted) ;)
